Jake Pavelka, who has made a decent career out of reality TV, tells RumorFix exclusively why he turned down a chance to be on another reality dating show and why he isn’t on Dancing with the Stars All Star edition.
The 34-year-old pilot was invited to be on Bachelor Pad 3 but he says he couldn’t come to terms, plus he says he didn’t see a real reason why he should be on the show other than taking off his shirt.
“I felt like the first time I had a great purpose with [his ex] Vienna [Girardi] being there,” he told us. But this time, “I don’t know what the purpose would be,” he says.
But, if he were offered a chance to be on DWTS, he’d leap at the chance. “If they would have actually made an offer, yeah I would have done it and I would have probably off the first week. But it would have been fun to dance with Chelsie Hightower again,” he says.
Jake says he and ABC spoke briefly, but he never thought he had a chance because he was eliminated by show seven and all of the celebrities who were chosen made it to the semifinals.
So, what’s Jake doing now? Fresh off a successful hosting stint with Chippendales at the Rio All Suites in Las Vegas, he’s enjoying some down time with his girlfriend Ashley Ann Vickers.
